. romney is on offense and obama is on defense in the final week. >> eric: obama on defense, he went to new hampshire and only got four electoral votes in new hampshire. he went up there to grab four. is that desperation or protection? >> it's protection. look, this race is going to be very close. everybody recognizes that. could come down to a few votes, a few states. i want to comment on what is going on with the weather. this actually has political implications. first of all, the public is going to be focused on the storm the next three or four days. it will take the focus off the election. it will be harder for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of th

of homeland defense and security. the head of fema, there's been a lot of conference calls every single day on emergency response. ray lahood has been coordinating the response on the transportation system, but fema is coordinating the overall response. i'm sure that there will be requests for infrastructure, for people. it is a disaster beyond belief. and there has to be a commission to look at ways we can try and prevent this in the future. one of the problems in new york is a lot of the infrastructure was in the basement of buildings. for example the hospitals, they had their m.r.i.'s, these huge electrical systems. and othercies testimonies in the basement. it's all destroyed with the saltwater. i was touring n.y.u. medical yesterday, and the smell, the stench just from a few days was almost unbelievable. the combination of this type of electric communication systems rotting. everywhere you see on the lower east side, the pumps are working, trying to push water out. some of our larger institutions do have generators, but fema and the national guard and really the federal government are
to the future and as we look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy i also remind everyone that we will be downsizing during this time. the army who at the beginning of calendar year 12 was a 570,000 will go down to 49,090,000 in the active component by the end of 17 so we have significant deployment commitments. we are downsizing our army and we are now looking to the future. one of the main things is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix so i talk about rea stats and the secretary of the army and i really pay a lot of attention to it. end strength, modernization and readiness. in general terms those are the drivers and we have to keep those imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of the future of past drug downs and some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army which leads to a hollow army and of course we always talk about in the army task force and its impact and unpreparedness as it was asked to go in to korea forced world
defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into korea post-world war ii. we don't want that to happen again

. virginia has -- depends on defense to a greater degree than every other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on defense and special flavor on federal spending because governmental employment is so important not just in northern virginia which borders and washington d.c. but also in hampton roads and the surrounding localities. host: water the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most large population states, they are many states in one. you ignore the virginia which is about 1/3 of the state's population and produces at least 30% of the boat if not more. that has a low nativity rate. that population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has people with the highest educational level and the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to tidewater and hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is a white-collar and blue- collar and has a large african- american population. it also has a relatively low nativity rape, people
has a little longer timeframe but payroll cuts are exacerbating the problem. and defense spending has to be on the table, too. >> you gleamed all the critical -- >> if you're going to have an agreement, republicans are going to have to give on tax revenues and democrats are going to have to give on entitlement spending. it's as simple as that. >> it is simple. >> it is real simple. i have repeatedly in the past been in favor of bull simpson. it would have been nice to do it. if we kept kicking the can down the road, the debt has grown bigger and bigger. the longer this goes on, the worse the problem gets. and the more the debt goes up. >> you see congress taking a trench on either side -- a lot of people disliked grover's pledge because they feel like it makes everyone feel more entrenched. you talk about independent spirit. a lot of times independent spirits don't necessarily come to the table in conversation. >> you need people who will serve in elected positions and understand their responsibility to govern. they need to make decisions. we have serious fiscal problems, serious econ
to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about, charles woodson, gave a big donation, $100,000, that's great. a great example to set for the rest of the country. redcross.org if you're thinking. brianna, quickly, i want to ask about the recent polling that's come out in wisconsin, and while i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for p
at it differently. and, you know, in a weird defense of mitt romney, in a weird defense of mitt romney, he was answering a deficit question there. he wasn't thinking about fema at all. >> right. in fact, he tried to dodge it a little bit. >> i think that's a really crucial because to me when i think about fema and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards f
to sequester those automatic defense cuts. listen to this. >> the strong american military, so strong no one would think of testing it. so strong that people would rather meet us on the bargaining table than on the battlefield that is essential to us and to the world. unlike the president, i will will restore that funding to our military. >> mitt romney has also been in virginia to help george allen get elected to the u.s. senate. allen is a former senator and governor of virginia. and he is trailing right now in the real clear politics average of polls to another former governor of virginia. democrat tim cane by about 0.8 points. the two men have raised about $30 million combined. and more than 40 million will dollars has been spent by outside groups on that race alone. allen getting help from mitt romney. tim cane getting help from the democratic ticket as well. >> folks, understand one thing, barack and i believe as i believe you do. that we only have one sacred obligation as americans. to equip those we send to war and care for them and their families when they comb home. >> so you saw m
states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many are trapped if their homes. the national guard rescuest ahead, and, also, there were buses coming out of harlem and people waiting four hours and never getting a bus and the new york stock exchange re-opened today and they all back to work but it could take time to get trading back to normal. check in with the markets and get you updated at the bottom of the hour meaning the top of the news here. cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement ins
the military and the secretary of defense said in fact the $1 trillion in cuts to the military, that would devastate our military. unless we change course, we could be looking at another recession down the road. the question is this, do you want the same course or do you want real change? we appropriate real change. >> the president is promising change but he didn't deliver. i promise change and i have a record of delivering. i started a business from scratch and helped make it success will. that is not easy. that is change. i took over another business in trouble and turned it around. that is real change. went to the olympics in trouble and got them back on track. that is real change. i went to massachusetts as the governor of my state -- there is a man from massachusetts, appreciate it -- the legislature was democratic, we did not battle. we had a multibillion dollar gap and we came together to solve the problem by reducing spending, brought taxes down 19 times, made our state more business friendly, and a $3 billion budget gap became a $2 billion budget surplus. or a rainy day fund. acc
still without electricity and the department of defense is helping to air lift utility crews into affected areas to get the lights back on. in new york, officials have restored power to more than 375,000 homes and businesses. people cheered when the lights came back on, gasoline is still tough to come by with lines stretching several miles in some locations across new york and new jersey today. some locations are still without electricity. so the gas cannot be pumped. officials have reopened the port of new york allowing more supplies in including fuel tankers brinking more than 200 million barrels of fuel to expedite that process. new york governor andrew cuomo temporarily waiving registration requirements for fuel distributors and transporters. after a day of increasing controversi controversy of the new york city marathon, michael bloomberg announced it has been canceled. quote, we would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it. we cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event, even one as meaningful as this, to di
frequency. in our article, quoted a guy from the environmental defense fund who knows a lot about this and eric made the analogy to baseball saying, in connection with the disgraced slugger barry bonds, he said, you could not attribute bonds' use of steroids to only one home run he hit, but only a fool would think that steroids had nothing to do with the amount of home runs he hit and how far he hit. i think that is analogy that is good -- i think it is an analogy that is good to think about. there are many factors that go into extreme weather, but overall, the fact the oceans are higher, the wer is warmer, there was more moisture in the atmosphere, that the arctic ice is melting -- those are facts. it is time to accept them. >> in fact, when you talk about the arctic ice melting, you talk about what scientists say may be a direct link between that and what you are experiencing in new york and people are expressing along the east coast now. but that is right. what you're talking about now is something specific to sandy. one of the interesting and very relevant things about this pa
like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well
're equal part defense of president obama and anger at the republican party. it's driving what looks to be potentially record early african-american vote which only helps the president. >> and lastly the president leading with overwhelming support when voters were asked does the candidate care about people like you. does care at 62%. mitt romney at 44%. is there an empathy gap that's still plaguing the governor and even more so now that we're going to see the president out with people, the regular folks in new jersey, the people that are dealing with storm cleanup, the first responders and the fema staff? >> yeah, i think this has always been the president's greatest strength and it's one we knew from the very quinnibeginning. it does it not only in person but on tv. what happened in that first debate, he didn't connect for 90 minutes and it put us back in the game. mitt romney closed that gap. i think over the next couple weeks as both of these men make their closing statements to the american people, most important to about seven swing states, mitt romney will have to find that way
and defense and crime and things like that. but that's been declining over time. in fact, you unpack the environment section of what people care about, climate tends to rank virtually dead last. people are more concerned with their local environment: air pollution, water pollution, things like that. this is why we've seen these new poll-tested terms like "carbon pollution." c.o.-2 is the thing i'm exiling at you right now, we breathe out carbon dioxide. so we're seeing new terms called green energy instead of climate change because polls show people are skeptical and dubious of those motivations. they believe it's been overblown and it turns people off. >> suarez: joseph romm, why haven't we heard more about this topic during the national campaign? >> well, of course, mitt romney gets money from fossil fuel interests that's one reason he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public becomes concerned about it. that's why th
come from national defense. day.ry 20 is a inauguratioinaun mid february, the treasury department estimates another raise in the current $16.40 trillion debt limit will be needed requiring a vote in congress. march 27, the current funding for the federal government runs out threatening a shutdown. the next call on who is best to reach across the aisle comes from providence, rhode island, where john is a democrat. caller: unfortunately, my party as much as they have been talking about the republicans, my party has been more and more taken over by the extremist fringe. you have to look at their resume to see what they have done in the past. mitt romney had to work with the other side. obama really sold us out in the last four years. host: some tweets we have been getting on this question include -- yesterday in new jersey, the president spoke about gov. christie. >> obviously, this is a federal, state, and local effort. the first thing i want to do is think everybody who has been involved and the entire rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list i have to say gov. christie t
to thank one of the greatest defensive players in nfl history for being here today, charles woodson! and i want to thank charles because i understand he made an announcement about a gift to the red cross to help support everybody over on the east coast. that's the kiennd of guy he is. we're grateful to him. thank you, charles. let's also give it up for your next united states senator tammy baldwin. [ cheers and applause ] she's going to be following leaders like herb cole and russ feingold in being fierce fighters for the people of wisconsin. now, for the past few days all of us have been focused on one of the worst storms in our lifetimes. we're awed and humbled by nature's destructive power. we mourn the loss of so many people. our hearts go out to those who have lost their loved ones. we pledged to help those whose lives have been turned upside down. and i was out in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation. you really get a sense of, you know, how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but, you know, we've also been inspired these past few days because when disaster str
and passion. where was i? (judge) you were discussing their pathology. (attorney) your honor, if the defense is proposing these murders -- (christine vachon) i don't think we are saying, "oh, there's absolutely no way we'd ever work within a hollywood system or whatever" but i do thi there's certain fundamental things. i mean, ultimately, the things that make our films interesting are exactly the things often that those systems strip away, like choice of cast, like final cut, you know. and like the chance to really be innovative, take chances on people and on structure and on form. so once those things are gone, then who does it really matter who's making the film? (narrator) with "the living end," a movie about two men with hiv, gregg araki added another voice to queer cinema. where's the party, animal? (rock 'n roll music playing) the world is ours. so, like, figure this: there's thousands and maybe millions of us walking around with this inside of us, this time bomb ticking, making our futures finite. suddenly i realized we got nothing to lose. you know, i went to the usc film school. and
wants to increase defense spending almost without limit. and yet the president is willing to make the hard but smart decisions based upon what the military needs. that seems to go to a fundamental decision, explain that a bit more for us. >> yes the -- i'm a former member of the budget committee. but the joint chiefs of staff request military spending at a certain level. the amount we're spending is far above that because congress usually adds on favorite construction projects and military armament projects and by the way the big labor unions support those also. so we're spending more than is recommended and our national security is not any better. in fact, it would be -- we would have stronger national security if we spent more wisely on weapons as president obama has suggested. but what's happened is that everybody talks about being for veterans. veterans are almost overpraised these days and i think part of it is a subconscious thing to make up for the days when they weren't thanked. but in any event the budget i
. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e. there could be a surprise state like pennsylvania or illinois. >> sean: good to see you, ann coulter. when we come back, we continue to track the monster storm sandy. over a million and a half people are out of power and new york is being flooded. lower manhattan and the new york governor's office is reporting storm-related deaths. we have a live report coming up next, and then later, this storm is interrupting the political world, but we continue to focus on the benghazi coverup. tonight in studio, the father and family of one of the fallen navy hero sales is going to join me here in studio, and they want
hard to find cheap gold. really, really hard. >> bullets, this is an amazing story, this is a defense contractor who's actually doing better. thigh blew away the numbers, carl, blue them away. >> pimco, this is september that is not empties amazon and then chart, this is a company that's doing more for natural gas and stocks. >> given the fact that we have been so rudders over the past few days. >> coming up, we got a hat trick, ism manufacturing, construction spending, three big pieces of economic news coming up at the top of the hour, don't go away. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one series from brother. easy to use, it's the ultimate combination of speed, small size, and low-cost printing. i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

of the house committee on homeland security. also with us the vice president of foreign and defense policy studies at american enterprise institute. danielle, i will be with you in a minute. we will talk with congressman king dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy in his community. your reaction to this latest news? >> as far as libya, this absolutely proves once again that this administration --, they had been forewarned. they were clearly not ready for it. that is bad you have in for itself but the fact they continued to cover this up, to spread misleading stories is absolutely inexcusable. there is time and place for politics but the loss of american life is, should always come before politics and clearly the state department officials in libya, in benghazi, in tripoli were warning of this. i mean we've known for a period of time that al qaeda had training camps in that area. we knew it was a hotbed of al qaeda and islamist activity. to have inadequate security and then, not to respond when the attack was made and then finally, not finally, but to continue to, cover this up and s
government is here to help. and that means the department of defense. and the department of defense yesterday was air lifting utility crews with their equipment here to new york, to new jersey and other places impacted by the storm. and more of those air lifts we anticipate to be coming over the coming days. there's an 800 number people can call. 1-800-621-3362. 1-800-621-3362. you can go to disast disasterassistance.gov. or indeed if you go to a disaster recovery center, all of the information you need to find out about the assistance you are entitled to can be found. and as was mentioned, people are now going door to door. one of my concerns -- i think all of our concerns is as the temperature drops with power still out in many neighborhoods, making sure that everybody is safe and if they need to get to a warm place that we're able to do that. so a lot of work ongoing. a lot more left to do. but the food, the water, all the assets coming into this area of the country, coming into new york. governor cuomo's been a great advocate. and coming into the borough of staten island. thank you. >> al
